    Question Identifying Hardinge Tailstock

    I am going through my dads old equipment to sell and I have no idea what some of it is, or what it goes to. I currently have a Hardinge tailstock, but have no clue which lathe it was used for.

    Any help identifying this piece is truly appreciated.

    Photo of the bottom might help. My first guess is it is for a dividing head/indexer.

    Looks like it is built to bolt onto a mill table so my first guess looks better to me.

    that is for use on a milling table with rotary indexer or dividing head, has the riser plate with it as well.

    It doesn't look at all like the tail-stock for any of the older & traditional hand operated Hardinge indexers & dividing heads commonly seen. The logo is certainly of the "modern" era of Hardinge. Agree that it goes with some device intended to be used on a CNC machine.

    In looking through another thread (LINK), I found what looks like a similar tailstock, and related rotary indexer.
